This is by far one of my favorite John Lee Hooker albums. I have spent a lot of money on John Lee Hooker albums and this album is in the top three, easily. I like this one so much because the stripped down dirty sound that Hooker has. This album is no where near as polished as It Serves You Right To Suffer (a great album in its own right). I do have one big complaint with this CD though. They cut out six tracks that are on both the record and the earlier edition of this CD. My suggestion would be to try and buy the earlier edition of this CD used here on amazon, and as of today, there are still some avalible. If you can't find an earlier edition, than this is the next best choice. It dosen't matter if your a fan of JLH, blues, or music at all, you need some form of this album in your collection.
